    • Supporting documentation may be required
  • The Associate Dean/Chair will forward information to the Director indicating support for the request
  • The Program Committee will deliberate if leave of absence will be granted for up to one academic year
    • If granted, leave of absence protocols at the Home University apply
  • Associate Dean/Chair will inform the Office of the Secretariat whether leave of absence is approved by the Home University ​
